What can I do for you?
Whether it’s academic writing, fiction or content writing, I want your work to be the best it can possibly be. I provide proofreading and editing that best suits the needs of the story you want to tell. When it comes to the former, I have been a trusted proofreader of academic articles for universities in and around Poland for over a decade.
Navigating your way through the minefield of social media and knowing how to effectively use it to both gain and cultivate an audience is paramount. You need to know how social media can work for you while understanding how it can work against you. Let me help to ensure your voice is heard above all the noise.
Telling your story sometimes means having to do it in front of an audience. My services focus on everything from personal coaching, speech writing, storytelling practice and much more. As a comedian and public speaker, I know that when it’s just you on stage, you can’t let fear or dull speaking skills get in the way of your success.
Sure, your website and social media is looking sharp, but how about the English version of your restaurant’s menu? What about the internal HR documentation of your international company? Your attention to detail, both online and offline, is what will help set your business apart from everyone else.
And sometimes YOU are the story. Whether you’re selling a product or yourself, how you organize and optimize your personal brand can make a world a difference. My personal services will create the foundation of authentic engagement that will allow you to shine. My work has tripled the reading audience for major companies here in Poland.
You’ve earned a loyal audience and delivered your story, but now they’re waiting for more. What comes next is more important than what came before. You proved you’re worthy of their attention, but can you keep delivering the goods? With decades of writing experience, I can help you maintain and grow an audience.
When the path to your story isn’t clear, sometimes all it takes is an open ear to allow you to access the inspiration that’s been there all along.
Whether it’s outlining your next presentation, walking through a new story idea or preparing your personal branding for the new year, I’m available to you.
The goal of my workshops is to boost the confidence of employees using English as a second language in the workplace.
Workshops are presented by professional American native speakers with decades of experience in teaching, public speaking and stand-up comedy.
I offer a wide range of audits for individual clients, small businesses and large companies alike, which includes: a Content Analysis report;
detailed proofreading of (adjustable depending on the size)% of your website’s English content; and lots more.
How soon do you prefer to get content for proofreading?
The sooner the better, especially for larger work. I recommend sending work with long enough deadlines so that when you get the work back, there is still time to review it on your end.
Do you only work in Wroclaw?
I have clients all over Poland. If you need my help, I’m available wherever you work.
Can I send you something to proofread the night before?
While it’s not ideal, I do accept submissions with extremely tight deadlines; however, there is usually an added charge.
I need to do presentation in English. I don't like speaking in front of an audience in Polish, let alone in English - what can you do?
People fear public speaking more than death, so I get where you’re coming from. That said, I can go over your presentation with you and make sure your message is clear, provide you with the confidence you’ll need to succeed, make sure your deck is correct, and more.
Will I be able to see your changes?
Absolutely. I always track my changes and leave comments for you to review and accept later.
Do you even edit and proofread restaurant menus?
This is one of my favorite things to do. I have corrected the English menus of numerous restaurants in and around Wroclaw. My goal is not just to correct the text, but make sure that the items in your menu are appetizing.
Do you do private English lessons?
I do not do private English lessons at this time.
What is a language audit?
Having worked in many different companies in Poland who use English in the workspace or for their marketing, I’m often surprised at the level of English. In most cases, they’re simply not aware of the problem. My language audits are designed to give your company a detailed report on the quality of English used in all of the company’s channels so we can discover the opportunities for improvement.
What experience do you have?
I’ve been regularly publishing articles, short stories and books for over 30 years. I was an English university lecturer in Poland for 14 years. When it comes to public speaking, I’ve done hundreds of events where I’m on stage presenting my ideas.
Do you like Poland?
Very much so! I’m lucky to live here.
